Hook thinks Ruja was "too kind" to Langhammer in his review for Russell. Langhammer, according to Hook, quotes from BR's Theory and Practice of Bolshevism, but  "... ignores the remarkable analyses and predictions in the book of how Lenin's terror would transform the Utopian dream we all shared into a totalitarian nightmare."

"The really unforgivable theory about Russell is that knowing the truth about totalitarian communism his last political words, so to speak, were 'Long live Ho Chi Minh!' whose triumph resulted in the next to the worst Holocausts of modern times!"
